Former Wanderers Player Signs for Bolton School

  • Nicky Hunt and Charlene Griffiths Jackson

Nicky Hunt, a former Bolton Wanderers’ defender, has committed to join the team of sports coaches at BSS Leisure, part of Bolton School Services, from February next year. He will join several other former professional athletes and experienced PE teachers in delivering football and other sports as well as outdoor adventure holiday camps at Bolton School for youngsters aged between 5-14 years. 

Nicky currently manages and still plays for Ashton United in the Northern Premier League and made 127 Premier League appearances for Wanderers from 2003-2008. He already works part-time in the PE Department at Bolton School Boys’ Division, alongside another former Wanderers’ favourite, Keith Branagan as well as in the Girls’ Division where he teaches football to pupils. 

A delighted Charlene Griffiths-Jackson, manager of BSS Leisure said: ‘I am thrilled that Nicky will join us in the new year. Our holiday camps are highly regarded, Ofsted registered and delivered within Bolton School’s 32 acre campus. All our profits are ploughed into the Bolton School bursary fund. Nicky will bring a considerable portfolio of experience and skills and we know children will really benefit from working with him. 

‘We offer parents excellent childcare provision at a great value for money – just £26 per day including lunch with discounted rates available for full week bookings. Our annual holiday programme consists of Outdoor Adventure, Multi-Sports, Stage and Football camps and includes activities such as swimming, rock climbing, orienteering, archery, dodgeball, tournaments, ball tactics, basketball and much more. Besides this, we also deliver an extensive range of quality services including a substantial aquatics programme, lifeguard and swim teacher courses, holiday camps, children’s birthday parties and facility hire opportunities.’
